Thomas More College will host its “Secret Adventure Camp,” an exploration in liberal arts for youth, July 16-20, 2012. In its second year, Secret Adventure Camp is a unique experience designed by TMC professors that offers students entering 4th-9th grades a glimpse of a liberal arts college curriculum. The week-long academic camp will be held 8:30 a.m. until noon daily.
Throughout the week, students will spend time engaging in English, mathematics, science, philosophy, music, art and more. Activities on the agenda include science experiments, storytelling, role playing, problem solving, dancing, broadcasting, musical interpretation, photography and writing. A comprehensive project for the week is to film activities and events, which will be compiled into a culminating video. The week will conclude with a brief presentation and brown bag lunch, where parents and friends can learn more about what the campers experienced.
The goal of Secret Adventure Camp is to encourage children to become creative problem solvers and to discover new talents that will help them succeed in their future academic and social pursuits. The cost is $150; however, if registered by June 15, the cost is reduced to $135. Space is limited.
